STI Lawman .45 ACP

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The STI Lawman was very smooth and built to exacting tolerances. Unfortunately, our test gun’s fixed sights were poorly regulated for elevation.

The best accuracy from the STI Lawman was 1.4 in. with Federal 230-grain Hydra Shoks. The gun shot extremely low, the result of a manufacturing defect the company says it has corrected.
